Stock Market In the Process of Making Important Low / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market
SPX: Long-term trend - Election years that fall in the 8th year of the Decennial pattern call for consolidation in the early part of the year followed by a strong finish. But the 6-yr cycle which is scheduled to bottom in late Summer/early Fall could also play a restraining role, followed by an eventual bull market top in 2009-2010.

SPX: Intermediate trend - an extended intermediate-term consolidation is in the process of ending and may already have ended.

Words from the Investment Wise for the Week that Was (23rd March)-Part2 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Continued from Part 1
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard (Telegraph): Foreign investors veto Fed rescue
“As feared, foreign bond holders have begun to exercise a collective vote of no confidence in the devaluation policies of the US government. The Federal Reserve faces a potential veto of its rescue measures.

“Asian, Mid East and European investors stood aside at last week's auction of 10-year US Treasury notes. ‘It was a disaster,' said Ray Attrill from 4castweb. ‘We may be close to the point where the uglier consequences of benign neglect towards the currency are revealed.'

Words from the Investment Wise for the Week that Was (23rd March)- Part 1 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePhew – what a tumultuous week! Once again, the fall-out of the subprime mess had a lot to do with it. For some variety, however, it was not only financial's that were in the limelight, but also commodities that corrected sharply.

Unrelated to St Patrick's Day, the week started off with a sense of fear for a market meltdown after it had been announced over the weekend that the Federal Reserve of New York facilitated the sale of Bear Stearns (BSC) to JP Morgan Chase (JPM) for the princely sum of $2.00 per share.

Market Update: Da Numbas! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Dominick

S&P - You didn't need to be a bull back in January to buy the exact low in the Socgen situation and we did, and you didn't have to necessarily be long term bullish to do it again this week. All it really took was to be unbiased at the very moment of that low, which is impossible to do if you are dancing from free chatroom to chatroom looking for someone else's trade or idea. Nor can you do it by listening to other services that have been consistently bearish for the last few years.

Stock Market Volatility Peaks Near Bear Market Lows / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: It is likely last Monday's low will mark the low point for the next several weeks.

Short Term
Last Monday there were 477 new lows on the NASDAQ, about the same as there were near the lows of last August, but substantially fewer than the 877 at the January low. Every day for the remainder of the week had less than half as many new lows as Monday.

Credit Crisis Thoughts- Fed Bear Stearns Action Saved Trillions in Losses / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

  • Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThoughts on the Continuing Crisis
  • Margin Clerks of the World, Unite!
  • Where Do We Find New Sources of Credit?
  • In Defense of Alan Greenspan
  • What Now for Gold, Oil, Etc?

My essay in Outside the Box last Monday seemed to ignite a lot of response in the blogosphere. My basic contention was that the Fed had to act to facilitate the sale of Bear to prevent a meltdown in the markets. Many agreed, but others said Bear should have been left to hang, pointing out that a thorough cleansing is what is needed. Others scoffed at the notion that allowing Bear to fail would have created a massive stock market sell-off. This week we will reexamine that concept, look at the drop in gold and commodities, come to the defense of Alan Greenspan (which should be food for a little more controversy), and think through to the end game of the economic crisis.

A Reply to John Mauldin's Outside The Box - Let's Get Real About Bear / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mick_Phoenix

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn Occasional Letter From The Collection Agency - I have been, and still am, a long time fan of John Mauldin (JM). I enjoy his take on the bigger picture, even if there are areas I disagree with, from time to time. Generally my disagreements are more to do with the severity of a particular problem or the benefits of a highlight. For instance, JM might allude to a recession but think that it will be mild and happen over a certain time scale, fitting his “muddle through” model. I would agree with the talk of recession but not necessarily the depth, timing or effect. You get the point.

Continuation Point for Equities as Credit Markets Continue Deflating / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Michael_J_Panzner

For the bulls, the events of the past several days have marked a major turning point for the U.S. equity market.

Share prices staged their first weekly gain in a month. The Federal Reserve pulled out all stops to save the banking system. Financial shares bounced hard. And inflation fears eased as commodity prices fell back to earth.

Stock Market Crosscurrents & Miracles / Stock-Markets / Dow Theory

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the close one week ago on March 14, 2008 , the equity markets were literally sitting on the edge of the abyss. The short-term T-bill rate had collapsed to just over 1% while the Discount rate was sitting at 3.5%. My Fed model suggested that another healthy cut was imminent and with the spread between the 3-month T-bill rate and the Discount rate at over 2% the Fed was forced to take action. On Sunday night, March 16, 2008, as the overseas markets opened they began to plummet, making it obvious that we were indeed sitting on the edge of the abyss. In a surprise, or should I say desperate, meeting on Sunday night the Fed cut .25% and on Monday the equity markets initially sold off sharply, but then recovered and closed the day marginally positive. On Tuesday the Fed cut the Discount rate another .75% and the Dow Jones Industrials closed up 420 points.

Stock Market Bottoming Process Continues- Good News Ahead / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors have had to endure a tremendous onslaught of horrendous news that has shaken the financial sector to the core. One pundit likened the past few months to flying a hang glider in a hurricane. That's how it has felt to all of us as bad news begat more bad news…which in turn drove the financial markets lower.

The good news is that the winds have now diminished and the dark clouds are on the verge of lifting. It's time now to focus on the positive things to come instead of dwelling on the negatives of yester-year. That's the message the stock market is telling to anyone who will listen.

Stocks Bear Market- How Bad Can It Get? / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo beat the market you need to invest with the trend. The stock market is down and continues to fall almost every day. As of March 19, 2008 the DJIA is down 8.8% for the year, the NASDAQ is down 16.7%, the S&P 500 is down 11.6% and the Russell 2000 is down 13.3%. Most investors are looking at their portfolios and they are very unhappy. The initial problems with the mortgage market started this tumble. Will it continue to get worse and is it spilling over into other parts of the U.S. economy? So how bad can it get?

Homebuilders ETF Approaching Resistance / Stock-Markets / Housing Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

I need to give you a heads up on the Homebuilders ETF (AMEX: XHB), which is nearing a confrontation with major resistance between 22.7 and 23.30. Let's notice that the sharply declining 200 DMA at 23.09 is right in the middle of that range and presents a major test of the bottoming/recovery process in the sector. However, based on my near AND intermediate-term technical work, the XHB will hurdle the above-mentioned resistance zone on the way to 25.00.

The Story Behind Bear Stearns- Cliff Notes on Financial Maelstrom / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the financial markets stare at the abyss, contemplate the cliff, suffering massive falls in selective stocks, a review of ‘Cliff Notes' might be appropriate. The financial maelstrom is gathering force and fury. The Bear Stearns story has a story behind it, as usual in the Grand Manhattan Den, where violent financial battles give false appearances as desperate measures are played out behind the scenes. The drama on Wall Street will make history. These guys are killing each other, while they cooperate with each other. Like crows, they killed and devoured one of their own.

Bear Stearns Bailout Proves US Fed is Merely an Extension of the Financial Industry / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne picture tells the whole story. It's a photo of five grim looking men in gray suits staring ahead blankly like they were in the dock with Saddam awaiting sentencing. Every one of them looks downcast and dejected; shoulders rounded and jaws set. This is what desperation looks like, which is why the photo was kept off the front pages of our leading newspapers.

Gold and the Plunge Protection Teams Virtual Garden / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Alex_Wallenwein

We all knew the world was ending … and then the Fed and the PPT stepped in and made it all okay again.

Bear Stearns, an 80-year investment banking veteran who saw the crash of 1929 and the Great Depression come and go, who weathered the stormy seas of stagflation during the 1970s and the brutal recession under Volcker and Reagan, disintegrates before our eyes, right into the open pockets of JP Morgan Chase - courtesy of the Federal Reserve (which JPM co-owns)..

Stock Market Update: Buying the Bottom, Badda Bing! / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

That was easy!! The markets have given us so much of what we've been expecting lately it's impossible to get it all into a single update, but long story short, badda bing badda boo, the main idea is that we were able to buy the low (again) and took the money at our target, which happened to be the high at the close Tuesday. We haven't been giving away as much lately in these free updates, but that doesn't mean we've stopped taking money from this market.

Fed Facilities Benefiting Financial Institutions Shareholders / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

There Should Be a Quid Pro Quo between the Fed and Financial Institutions - The Fed's creation of various facilities in recent months - the Term Auction Facility (TAF) for depository institutions, the Term Securities Lending Facility (TSLF) for primary government securities dealers and the Primary Dealers Credit Facility (PDCF) - would be expected to alleviate some institutional liquidity issues that otherwise could metastasize into institutional solvency issues. Commercial and investment banks now can borrow against seemingly credit-worthy collateral with a much smaller "haircut" than otherwise. The Fed has created these new liquidity facilities in order to forestall a systemic failure of the financial system, not to enhance financial institution shareholder value.

Bear Stearns Bailout- Perhaps the Wrong Science? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Paul_Petillo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you have ever taken the time to watch water swirl around a pier, you have seen turbulence. The fixed object creates eddies that are at first large and then, as the turbulence seems to move around and away, they diminish. The late Robert Kraichman, a physicist saw this type of turbulence and wondered if it happened on a larger scale, would the same large to small changes take place.

Bear Stearns Fire-sale Sends Global Markets and US Dollar Plunging / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's a snowball and it keeps getting bigger,” Peggy Furusaka, credit specialist at BNP Paribas SA in Tokyo.

Last night, while America slept, investors and dollar-holders around the world held an impromptu election on US stewardship of the global economy. It was a spontaneous referendum triggered by the sudden collapse of Bear Stearns, but it covered many of the issues that have worried investors for the last seven years: the unfunded Bush tax cuts, the $2 trillion war in Iraq, the Federal Reserves low-interest bubble-making policies, the reckless gutting of US industrial base, the $4 trillion increase to the national debt, the multi-billion dollar “no bid” contracts, the opaque deregulated financial system, and the systematic destruction of the world's reserve currency. The ballots are still being counted, but the outcome is certain.

The Bear Stearns Rescue Fiasco / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEliot Spitzer and Bear Stearns. Not an unlikely couple in a statement in any given week, as Mr. Spitzer was known to take a swing at any financial company that may be doing wrong. However, last week both were bowed low – Eliot by personal demons, Bear Stearns by what may be called an old fashioned run on the bank. Eliot may wind up on the wrong side of prison bars and Bear Stearns may become nothing more than a historical footnote. The Fed and JP Morgan have come to the temporary rescue of Bear Stearns, however given the very intertwined dealings of financial instruments, investors began to wonder how many others might suffer the same fate in the weeks ahead.
